About Auntie’s Cat Kennels
Offering a High Standard of Short and Long-Term
Cat Boarding Since 1999
Auntie’s Cat Kennels is located on Sunnyside Drive, right off River Road, in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. The cat kennel, which sits in an adorable, quaint little neighborhood, was originally designed by a Veterinary Technician from England. The mission was to provide each cat with a personal, loving, home-like environment. The kennel cottage was designed without cages. Instead of being confined to a small cage with little space, each kitty has a spacious condo with a window. It was the first cat boarding facility like this in the Eugene area.
Terry and Faith LaCross acquired the cat kennel in the Fall of 2001 and have continued to carry forth the dream and desire of the original founder. Both Terry and Faith grew up with many cats and have always loved them. For over 25 years each, Terry and Faith have worked in human services. Terry is social worker and Faith is a registered nurse.
With their innate love for animals, it has been a natural transition for them to combine their sense of caring and medical experience with their love for kitties. To increase their knowledge of running a kennel, Terry and Faith received training from one of the original owners and also from Dr. Ann Samsell at Cat Care Limited.
Aside from spending time in the cat kennel, Terry and Faith love to garden (which the kitties enjoy looking at, too), hiking, taking pictures, going to see live music and surfing the Oregon Coast.
“We have been using Auntie’s for over 12 years. Our kitties have always been given excellent love and affection. The spaces are always clean and they always welcome our Franklin with much love. Faith and Terry are the best!”
